I first visited this memorial during the Historic U.S. East tour I did with Globus in July 2009. I'd seen photos of the memorial and, I wanted to see it up close. I was glad I made the effort to do so. The memorial commemorates all the campaigns Marines have fought in since the American Revolutionary War. Around the base in gold letters are the names of all the campaigns Marines have fought in. The scene in the memorial copies a photo Joseph Rosenthal (I believe) took of the Marines raising the flag at Iwo Jima during the World War II. It was and is a stirring scene of valor and determination. The memorial is moving and a fitting tribute to all Marines who have served in the USMC. I've attached a photo I took of the memorial. The memorial is located right next to Arlington National Cemetary. There is parking located close to the memorial though it can also be reached via walking from the cemetary. There isn't any charge to visit the memorial. In my opinion, the memorial is definitely worth seeing.
